Sanford’s Wife: I Still Haven’t Heard From Him

AWOL South Carolina governor Mark Sanford may have briefly checked in with his office this morning to assure them he’s fine and he’ll be back at work tomorrow. But he hasn’t told his wife, according to her.

A CNN reporter tracked down Jenny Stanford at her Sullivan Island vacation home. Sounding less like the wife of a 2012 presidential contender and more like America’s favorite reality TV star announcing her separation from her husband, she said: “I am being a mom today. I have not heard from my husband. I am taking care of my children.”Jenny Stanford had helped stoke the story yesterday when she told the AP she didn’t know where her husband was.

It’s unclear why hiking the Appalachian Trail would be something Sanford would keep from his wife.
